Tese diamond discs aren't mine, they are from someone I borrowed. The person gave me 8 diamond discs. However, I only transferred 7 of the discs, because one of the discs did not sound listenable at all. 2 of the discs have only 1 side transferred. That's because it was either a bad side or I couldn't make it sound listenable. Enjoy! :) Topics: Thomas Edison, Records, Diamond Discs

After their faces began appearing regularly on these big screens, odd people like Carmen Miranda and Jimmy Stewart became household names. A century later, the...
